4:05am

4:09am
an umpire for two games after his crew blew a call in a game on thursday. it was the second straight night that umps messed up. on wednesday another umpire and crew missed a clear home run. i don't know how they do these things. i've been down on umps a number of types but look at replays, the vast majority of time they get it right so we all make mistakes. i made a mistake in 1987, i remember it. >> you owned up to it. >> was a bulldozer involved. >> anger management memory. all right, ron. >> just kidding. of course, you're kidding. well, there is wild weather in the southwest to tell you about this morning. unbelievable lightning show caught on camera in houston. much of the city found itself underwater and for more on the weather we go to meteorologist ginger zee. good morning. >> there were more than 107 reports just yesterday. when we're talking about severe weather, it's been a slow spring
4:10am
but look in the northeast you have one pocket then, of course, in texas and where there are severe storms is lightning. listen to this. that is lightning and thunder, you're right, ron claiborne. he's good. on top of that that was around houston. you had water, tons of energy rushing under the streets and then this happened. so a crazy day in the houston area. had that manhole popping up and other the pocket happened in of the northeast and hail from western new york and that's what it looks like all in pennsylvania and new york too. let's talk about who is going to be on tap for severe weather today because that's what we have to be concerned with. the same cold front pushes to the east. i'd say from the mid-atlantic, norfolk, wilmington, the carolinas into parts of south texas and, of course, eastern florida so jacksonville going to be in the thunderstorms, as well. so severe weather potential that
4:11am
continues today. it would be mostly damaging wind and hail but, remember, lightning, one of the bigger killers too. i'll be back with the nation's forecast but for now dan and bianna. prince harry is waking up in the mountain time zone. here he is at a cocktail party in colorado. last time he was in this part of the world it got wild. there was that lost weekend in vegas but this time around things are very different and abc's lama hasan usually in london is on this side of the pond covering the story. >> yes, good morning to you. great to see you. it's a treat to be here so thank you for having me. day three on the prince's tour in denver, colorado. all eyes have been on harry to see what he gets up to and if he misbehaves i can safely say apart from unleashing the charm, it's been all business. prince harry's tour of america headed out west, his latest stop, denver, colorado. his royal highness charmed the
4:12am
crowd of politicians, ceos and dignitaries. one congressman even teased him about his way with the ladies. one very special lady, missy franklin got an extraordinary 18th birthday treat as the prince joined in a sing-a-long, everyone to wish her a happy birthday. ♪ happy birthday to you >> meeting prince harry on my 18th birthday made it extremely special. i love the royal family and i think they're incredible and to have the opportunity to meet him incredible. such an amazing guy, so nice, so funny, so down to earth and i think everyone enjoyed meeting him. >> reporter: he is spending a couple of days in colorado springs to watch the warrior games where wounded veterans from the u.s. and britain will compete, supporting and championing their cause which was on full display when the prince was touring the walter reed medical center before inon friday.
4:13am
support and comfort from this soldier to the other. well, the prince will be spending an entire day at the warrior games today meeting 9 wounded soldiers and competing and, of course, going to lunch before the opening ceremony and one note, check this tweet out to see the harry charm in full effect. missy franklin writing and the perfect way to end my 18th birthday, meeting prince harry. you can see her swoon in that picture. >> exciting. >> prince charming striking again. >> he will be a cool uncle. >> i think so too. >> see more trips like this and may forget about the whole party boy thing. >> i think so. school yard fights are not unusual but in florida this morning there is an uproar over this fight right here between two teenage girls caught on camera. >> here's why, a school bus driver under arrest and charged with child abuse for allegedly arranging the fight. abc's john schriffen is here with the details.
4:14am
hey, john. >> good morning. imagine sending your kids to the school only to have the bus driver encourage fighting then authorities say she told the students, get this, what happens on the bus stays on the bus but when just about every child has a cell phone parents and local sheriff's office soon saw the whole thing. some might say school yard fights are just part of growing up. but this is no school yard. authorities say it's actually the school bus driver's front yard. this morning, that driver, 29-year-old patrice sanders, is in jail because authorities say she is the one who set this fight up. come on, girl. what are you thinking? how in the world could you allow and promote and encourage children to fight? >> reporter: the brawl was captured on video by another student as kids rush off the bus
4:15am
to watch the two girls, ages 13 and 16 punching, quicking and pulling each other's hair. watch as one of the girls throws the other into a barbecue grill. authorities in florida say it all started thursday on the ride home from school when sanders saw the two girls arguing in the back of the bus. the driver allegedly telling the girls, this is going to be handled today. they need to fight. >> the 13-year-old telling them i don't want to fight. >> reporter: sanders allegedly skipped the rest of the stops driving 20 miles straight to her house and ordered all 34 students off the bus. even offering the two scrapping girls vaseline or baby oil so they wouldn't get their faces scratched much the sheriff's office said once the bus got going again, the two girls began fighting again. instead of putting a stop to it sanders allegedly pulled over to referee round number two. as a school bus driver for the past eight months but after being arrested charged with
4:16am
child abuse she was soon fired. now, her first appearance will be in court this morning, dan and bianna, interesting to see whether she'll plead guilty or fight the charges. >> the sheriff was remarkable. you rarely see -- >> come on, girl. >> you rarely see law enforcement talking like that. >> maybe the next dr. phil, thanks, john. >> thanks, john. well, for those of you eating your morning cereal you may want to put your spoon down for our next story. no surprise that more and more restaurants are adding exotic dishes to their menus these days, chefs all over are pushing limits but one place in florida is taking things to a whole new level and feeling the heat for their wild tacos. we sent abc's matt gutman to check it out. >> reporter: anything this good could cause such an uproar. taco fusion, the pride of tampa, well, sort of began offering them filled with fresh lion meat earlier this week.
4:17am
it hasn't exactly been a roaring success. the offering is being mauled by some animal lovers mostly online. >> coming in to the establishment and throwing punches and things like that, they'll bomb up, blow us up, i mean just silly, ridiculous statements. >> reporter: but barnett decided to sell even more lions, which is endangered but legal to sell and eat in the u.s. >> i just found a shipment yesterday of 50 more pounds of lion meat. >> reporter: only one thing for a reporter to do. that's lion meat, huh? how much does this cost a pound? >> 220 bucks. >> reporter: which means each taco, 5 bucks. there's my lion going right into a taco and the moment of truth. the flavor is good and i wasn't the only one, finding herds of folk on the hunt for some lion. >> same here because they were on the news with tacos that you normally wouldn't eat that you
4:18am
don't hear of so we wanted to come and try them out. >> reporter: they did. what's the verdict? but lion isn't the main afaction here. ostrich, otter and bison can all be found on the menu of this noah's ark of exotic cuisine where lions may be the kings of the jungle but camels are the kings of the kitchen. >> so. >> reporter: camel meat down the hatch. mm-mm. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, tampa. >> the better man than me. i would not eat many kale. definitely not. >> i think ostrich is as far as i'll go. >> also better than me. speaking of better than me ginger zee. >> you can pick up your spoons again. this won't gross you out. it might be a little scary for parts of texas, they had so much rain, look at the numbers, houston, that's at javy, 2.65, bottom, 5.5 and lake charles,
4:19am
almost 5 inches, the rain will keep going and going to the east and who will get it and how much. mobile to tallahassee is where we're in that one plus rank. might see flooding concerns there and more, of course, here in new york city, look at this live shot from wabc. it's a little stormy but not quite as bad as it was in some parts overnight but on and off rain showers, scattered showers we'll call it throughout the day. this is what you're going to expect numberswise. then interrupted it with the rain, 74, new york city, 75, philly, pittsburgh right there at 62. you see the coal front followed by another cold front and behind that it's cold. surprise, surprise. look how cold. real cold in rapid city at freezing, north platte, 46, omaha, 48 so looking for a lot of cool weather there, but the warmth at least for today is out in the southwest, los angeles, 80. san diego, 72 las vegas and they'll see a cooldown though going into the end of the wk
4:20am

4:21am
we have a fascinating look at the world. researchers mounded cameras on bears to record their every move. the result, remarkable images of them touring towns in alaska and it turns out these guys aren't exactly picky eaters. here's abc's david wright. >> reporter: 98% of america's brown bears live in alaska. most of them grizzly bears. the smallest adults are about the size of an nfl linebacker. they have sharp teeth and they are omnivores. they eat everything. alaska also has a large number of black bears who may look like teddy bears but you wouldn't want to encounter them munching on your garbage. in anchorage it's enough of a problem that state wildlife officials wanted to understand what they do all day so the alaska department ofh d
